Genetics

Presentation

The Genetic Unit coordinates and is responsible for the academic activity in the subjects of Medical Genetics in the degree of Medicine, Genetic Analysis in the degree of Biomedical Sciences, Molecular and Therapeutic Pathology in the degree of Biomedical Engineering, and additional subjects related with genetics in degrees, masters and postgraduate courses. The members of the Genetic Unit belong to several research groups (Molecular Biology of the Reproduction and the Development, Inflammation in Hepatic Illness, Genetic and Urological Tumors), all pertaining to the IDIBAPS.

Additionally, several members also develop activity clinical and laboratory work at the Clinical Hospital of Barcelona. These complementary activities of research and clinical and laboratory work are very enriching as they allow to transmit to the students the first hand personal experiences of the different professionals of the Unit.
